Hope Kent

Postgraduate Research Student

 Washington Singer 

 

Washington Singer Laboratories, University of Exeter, Perry Road, Prince of Wales Road, Exeter, EX4 4QG, UK

Overview

I am an ESRC funded PhD student, studying on the Advanced Quantitative Methods pathway of SWDTP studentships. I am also an Alan Turing Enrichment Student, undertaking a placement at the Jean Golding Institute. 

My research interests are around using statistical modelling in large administrative datasets to understand criminalisation of people with neurodisabilities. In my PhD, I am looking at linked Ministry of Justice and Department of Education data to understand criminalisation of children and young adults, with a particular focus on those with neurodisabilities and Looked After Children. I am also interested in social models of disability, and in exploring how we can make education and healthcare systems accessible and appropriate for children with neurodisabilities.  

I am the UK policy and research director for PINK Concussions, an American charity which advocates for women and girls who have experienced brain injury. I provide administrative support for the Criminal Justice Acquired Brain Injury Interest Group (CJABIIG), which is part of UKABIF. I also co-ordinate the GLEPHA Neurodisability Special Interest Group, which meets quarterly to share interventions, research, and ideas to prevent people with neurodisabilities coming into contact with the criminal justice system. 

Additionally, I am a Research Assistant for TRYJustice, a newly formed network working towards improving outcomes for children who are in contact with the criminal justice system.
